There are probably 13,000 Baptists today in Birmingham for the Baptist World Alliance Congress. Thats a lot of people. I left yesterday but was there for most of it. My mate Greg Warner will probably give the skinny on the conference for the Associated Press, but I thought it was a huge success - great location, great spirit, lots of friends, good weather (apart from that tornado and a few spots of rain), good emphasis on missional thinking.
I am glad to say that these 2 nerds were dressing that way on purpose, although some people probably didn't see anything wrong with their fashion sense. I thought they looked cool. I gave the guy on the right a big hug.
